Graduation Photos FAQ

NC State is partnering with Photo Specialties this year to offer professional photos to graduates. Below is information regarding the processes of taking, receiving, and purchasing those photos.


Where will the photos be taken and how will the photographer match my photo with my name and information?


Photos of doctoral candidates will be taken crossing the stage at the main university ceremony taking place at the PNC arena. Photos are matched based on the final list of candidates provided by the Graduate School and used to call student names during the ceremony.


Graduating seniors and masters candidates who are interested in having graduation portraits taken of them in their cap and gown may do so on Friday, May 8, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Talley Student Union - there will be signage to direct you. You will be asked to complete a card with your name and contact information prior to getting your photo taken. You will receive an email within five days providing you with a password to go in to Photo Specialties website and view your proof. You will also receive a paper proof through the mail.


Photos taken at the Chancellor’s Reception will be printed on demand at the time you you have them taken.
